Dying hydrangeas? And a poorly clematis?
Hello there, can anyone help?
I purchased these hydrangeas and planted in pots (ericaceous soil) around 10 weeks ago. They were doing well initially but over the last 2-3 weeks have started looking decidedly sad! The blue is doing slightly better than the pink but both have faded and the pink one is very dry. I have been checking the soil and watering to keep it moist. They are in morning sun and afternoon shade. Are they on their way out?! What should I do?
Separately, I have a clematis etoile voilette that was flowering beautifully but has also gone all crusty! I must confess I haven't been watering this one, although obviously we haven't been particularly short of rain. Is this normal?
